Nord Stream investigations, first images show powerful explosions

First videos of the leaks. Operators of the Norwegian company Blueye Robotics photographed one of the breakpoints of the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline on the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The photos were taken at a depth of 75-76 meters

The Swedish newspaper Expressen published the first footage of the damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines. The video, filmed by an underwater drone, shows extensive damage to the pipeline. There are cracks on some parts of the pipe and the metal is very deformed. Meanwhile, investigations by the Swedish and Danish police go towards confirming that the damage to the pipelines was caused by powerful explosions. Copenhagen police said the preliminary investigation into the Baltic Sea incident confirmed that “the damage to the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines in the Danish exclusive economic zone was caused by powerful explosions”.

Operators of the Norwegian company Blueye Robotics photographed one of the breakpoints of the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline on the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The photos were taken at a depth of 75-76 meters with an underwater camera that detected damage to a burst pipe during possible sabotage to the pipeline.
